12:00 am
stops here, because we are definitely looking out for you. captioned by closed captioning services, inc. -- >> sean: anointed one celebrated the labor day holiday on the stump. he went off teleprompter to complain about his many critics. >> the president: they talk about me like a dog. that's not in my prepared remarks, but it is true. >> sean: they talk about me like a dog? you are probably a jimi hendrix fan from the song "stone free." >> they talk about me like a dog ♪ talk about the clothes i wear ♪ but they don't realize they're the ones who's square ♪
12:01 am
>> sean: anointed one should be spending less time listening to jimi hendrix, more time on the economy. throwing money is the only solution so far. another 50 billion dollars to improve our infrastructure. >> the president: we're talking roads, bridges, dams levees, also a smart electric grid that can bring clean energy to new areas. broad band internet so everybody is plugged in. we are talking about high speed rail lines to compete in the 21st century economy. i want to get down from milwaukee down to chicago quick! [ applause ] >> the president: avoid a traffic jam. this is a plan that will be fully paid for. it will not add to the deficit over time. >> sean: only thing that is missing is howard dean going rah! he has passed several spending
12:02 am
bills it began with the 814 billion dollar stimulus. then a 26.9 billion dollar financial overhaul masterminded in part by countrywide senator chris dodd. 34 billion dollar unemployment bill. last month 26.1 billion dollars in aid to state governments. those bills left us with 9.6% unemployment. somehow the president thinks spending 50 billion dollars more is going to turn the economy around. joining me with analysis from the fox business network, host of varney & company, stuart varney and dana perino. dana, my critics talk about me like a dog. >> yeah, even listening to that again, it reminds me of when you watch figure skating on television and you watch somebody fall. and it makes you wince and you feel bad for them. that's how i feel when i watch
12:03 am
that. >> sean: why? >> because presidents should expect criticism. you know the saying never let them see you sweat? he's letting people know his critics are getting to him. there's part of me that wonders now that he's realized that governing is much harder than campaigning or than being a critic would he want to amend any of his words that he used to describe president bush or that he continues to describe president bush. unfortunately for him the tone seemed very under presidental. >> sean: i thought i would hear howard dean scream rah! >> that's not a good imitation. putting aside the comment he can't take criticism which we have known for a long time. another 50 billion dollars in spending. at some , the level of tone-deafness, i can't comprehend this. >> desperation. the president has had two terrible weeks of very bad
12:04 am
economic news. now down goes his polling numbers. he hasn't got a plan. he scrambles to get something together and come up with another spending bill. we have spent a trillion dollars and we end up with a lousy 1.6% growth rate. 9.6 unemployment. what do we get from this desperate president? more of the same. spend another 50 billion dollars on so-called infrastructure. union money that's where that money is going to go. >> sean: gatherer in rick ballot, -- generic ballot, enthusiasm gap 20 point advantage for the republicans if you look at nbc "wall street journal" this was the scariest poll that i saw 2/3 of the country now think our nation is in a state of decline. these are frightening numbers. i don't think 50 billion dollars more is going to help the president. >> it goes beyond the
12:05 am
political. i've always been a little bit of a -- not a pessimist but cautious optimist about republicans' chances in the fall. they have to show meat behind the bones. put some meat on the bones when it comes to their policies. but these numbers are very troubling. when you have numbers like that in polls like the mainstream polls that you were just describing, you know you've got a serious problem. i don't think they have time to turn it around. usually in an election year people's feelings start to solidify after labor day. i don't think they are going to have anything big. when he talked about 150,000 miles of road that might be fine but they are not going to happen before november. >> sean: if dick morris is right those that are undecided are going to break away from the democrats. that poll 2/3 of the country thinks we are in a steam decline stuart, if you couple that with his approval rating now on the economy and the
12:06 am
handling of the economy is 39%. those numbers, 56 days out of election are devastating. >> you can't turn them around dana is right. you cannot turn them around in 50 odd days. i disagree with dana a little bit. >> sean: what a shock. >> i think the republicans have put some meat on the bones of what they propose. they are saying stop the spending that's what voters are saying too. they are saying extend all tax cuts. don't burden us down with more regulation. we are -- they are calling for a one year moratorium on new regulation. i i think that is meat on the bones. i don't think the voters want another stimulus -- >> sean: peter orszag is now saying, the former head of the omb under obama. >> democrats are split on the issues of taxes and also on health care reform. look at ron widen out of oregon saying watch out, not
12:07 am
gonna apply that mandate in oregon. >> i see your point gentlemen, make sure to watch minority leader boehner tomorrow morning on "good morning america" i think -- remember they said, the last few weeks they've been saying they will have more to say come september, i think tomorrow could be the beginning of that. >> sean: he was on last week, he said september 15th. i think they are going to come out with something similar. which i'm calling for. i think this will instill confidence and hold these republicans accountable, if it is on paper and if they sign their name to it. 34 democrats now running against health care. there's no democrat that voted for the health care bill or the stimulus that i know -- >> i follow the economy, and business there's a tendancy to assume that's the ma juror o'juror issue that's why -- that's the major issue that's why the president is down in the polls. it is health care, the president attacking arizona, the mosque, apologizing to our
12:08 am
enemies. it is the weak response to the oil spill. it a trillion dollars added to the deficit every year. add up all of the above and you have a disastrous tailspin for the president. >> sean: what they are doing is governing -- politicians usually have the sense of self-preservation. they won't govern against the will of the people this is the only administration i think that see flagrantly goes against the will of the american people on every major issue >> desperate and out of touch. >> sean: good to see. dana we miss you. >> i'll be there next week. >> sean: time for our tuesday text voting. do we need another stimulus bill? text us at 36288 type: we reveal the results at the end of the show. stay tuned. stay tuned, there's plenty more hannity, straight ahead. >> the president: they have not come up with a single
12:09 am
solitary idea that is any different from the policy of george w. bush. >> sean: will these blame bush strategy payoff in november? frank luntz has the answer, next. >> of course we have to get our border secured anybody who doesn't think so come to arizona. >> sean: senator mccain challenges president obama to visit the border. jan brewer and former imam sticking up for opponents
12:10 am
12:11 am
sean health care reform was supposed to be the crown jewel of the president's domestic agenda. democrats who voted for it are running scared. out of the 219 house democrats who supported the bill guess how many have released ads highlighting their vote? zero. by contrast 34 house democrats who voted against the bill have issued ads, ouch.
12:12 am
12:13 am
12:14 am
they have a less likely attitude about voting. they're less interested in politics. people who are most angry with president obama voters aged 60 and older. you'll have to beat them away
12:15 am
with a stick. they're going to vote, and that is going to make this spread wide year add two other factors to that. intensify ti with conservatives and republicans. and secondly, he's lost independence in record numbers as we saw in massachusetts, virginia and new jersey. is there anyway he can get voters back? >> the problem is that he's asking his congressional leadership to bring voters back. nancy pelosi is one of the unpopular political figures across the spectrum burke particularly among inds. she's seemed so partisan and out of the political main stream. the challenge for democrats is frankly not just to run away from brom brom. it's nancy pelosi so many americans are sending a message to, so many americans are fed up with. >> what do you think? i'm being negligent if i didn't ask you the question. president saying critics talk about me like a dog. now, and by the way that wasn't in the fell tela prompter.
12:16 am
i heard that yesterday. i'm thinking... you know, what is the president thinking by, you know, being so sensitive? >> i'll tell you something. as tough as critics have been against barack obama, there are far tougher against george w. bush. they would go to events, throw things and interrupt. they'd disrupt to the point where president bush was in cases, it was a challenge to get through the speech. you don't see that with barack obama. also, take a look at the parts of the country that are turning against this administration and the democratic party. pennsylvania, ohio. i know you've god an ad tlchl ohio one of the key bell weather states. >> and they've had witness the democratic party. >> and rob portman with head with a significant margin. let's run this ad attacking governor strickland. >> 1250 jobs, gone. >> ncr? >> yes. strickland couldn't hold on to
12:17 am
them. moved to georgia. >> we lost 400,000 jobs under strickland. >> got to be a world record. strickland doesn't get the jobs done. >> wonder when ours go? >> this is pretty high marks both sides, it's unprecedented that. is a republican governor's association ad against ted strickland. you never see a negative add scored so well among republicans and democrats. it doesn't matter, they listened to the ad. the last sen yens, i wonder when ours will go, it's something every american is thinking right now when is it going to be my job on the line despite a trillion dollars up. >> and that is... one in 10 americans are risking foreclosure, i just mentioned there are 34 democrats running ads against pelosi, obama,
12:18 am
against health care no. democrats voted for obama care is running an ad saying i voted for the stimulus. let's run this ad. >> page at the health care bill. a government committee will decide what treatments you get. page 58, the government will have realtime access to individual finances. page 59. government will have direct access to bank accounts for electronic funds transfer this, is real this, is now. fight back in november, 2010. >> low numbers. lower numbers because it's so draw matic, so powerful, it's frightening. here is something viewers should understand. what is in that ad is accurate and true. giving a page number and specifics. we ask people why did you dial so low? they were so frightened. 56 days to go.
12:19 am
the reason why democrats aren't talking about health care. it's because of that ad. they're frightened about details in the legislation. >> that is why i think republicans need to run on repeeling it. i go back to what we said here, is that two thirds of the nation in this poll say they think america is in decline. that to me that, ought to be the biggest warning sign to every politician. >> i want to make an offer to viewers if they want to dial ads and get involved and participate in a focus group, all they have to do is go to the web site the word they can sign up. we're going nobody a city near you at some point within the next 56 day autos for more election polls, mid term news, it's going to be found when you head over to fox plenty more hannity coming your way. >> i love for the president to come visit the border.
12:20 am
unfortunately he hasn't had time to do so. >> well the -- will the president accept senator john mccain's invitation? we'll ask jan brewer, next. >> just because you have a right to build a mois being does not make it right to build a mosque at ground zero. >> opponents accused of being islamma-phobic. one former imam is here to explain who is behind the smear campaign. and a cnn host says americans overreacted to the september 11th attacks. hannity continues straight ahead. activia's great new taste?
12:21 am
isn't this the yogurt that, you know... helps regulate your digestive system. trust me. it is beyond tasty. mmm. this is really good! new best tasting activia ever! taste it, love it, or it's free!
12:22 am
12:23 am
12:24 am
. of course we have to get our borders secured anybody who doesn't think so come to arizona. i would love for the president to visit the border. unfortunately, he hasn't had time to do so. >> sean: that was senator mccain this weekend inviting
12:25 am
president obama to visit the still struggling arizona border. an invitation that has thus far been ignored. the administration standing by its declaration earlier this year that the border is secure. >> i knee border, i think as well as -- i know that border, i think as well as anyone. it is as secure now as it has ever been. >> sean: really? clearly the white house has not seen our report on this issue. >> reporter: you haven't seen any border patrol and you won't there's nobody watching. >> reporter: rancher drives this road daily. what he sees is not what washington says. >> secretary napolitano says that the border has never been more secure. yet you have ranchers in arizona saying we've anyone seen it any worst, what is right? >> statistically, she right. honestly she is wrong. >> reporter: unlike heavily fortified border cities, yuma,
12:26 am
san diego areas in between are not. while it is true the number caught is down doesn't mean the board secure. >> sean: this disconnect is why arizona has taken matters into its own hands led by governor brewer who signed the state's immigration bill into lieu. while parts have gone into effect. the obama administration continues to file new lawsuits to prevent its enforcement. here with an update on the border battle, the woman2ee who refuses to back down. are par governor jan brewer, welcome back. let's go back to what janet napolitano -- she had a different take years ago when she was heading up arizona. she now saying i know it as well as anyone it is secure now as it has ever been is that a factual, truthful statement? >> no, that is not a factual statement. bottom line is, they can give all the statistics, all data they want. it is the facts on the ground that count. anybody that has been paying any kind of attention to our
12:27 am
borders they realize they are not secured. we have an enormous amount of illegal immigration. we've got drug cartels coming across. it is out of control. it is simply out of control. we are grateful that we received a few more national guard for a short period of time. and some border patrol. but that's for a year. we need our borders secured, we need our fence built and we need the federal government to stand up and do their job. we are not going to back down. sean, it is unbelievable that we as a state, a small state at that, that we have to sit here and defend ourselves from the violence coming across the border and from the statements being made by our federal government. not only don't they protect us, but they sue us. >> sean: you met with the president, you invited him to come to the border. we just heard from senator mccain, open invitation to go
12:28 am
down there. he told what in the white house when you invited him to see for himself? >> , he said that he -- well he said that he would like to do that but didn't know if he would be available. the same when i kept asking with a meeting with him that his schedule was too busy. but he did meet with me. it was a donnybrook it was -- i'm telling him one thing and he's telling me the other. the people -- no he's never been to our border, never. >> sean: any further contact with you and the president or the white house over your invitation over the status? they filed the lawsuit,3gsyí judge's ruling. you are battling back. any contact whatsoever? >> no, absolutely not. >> sean: let me ask you, they've taken it a step further. i guess america's favorite sheriff, pink underwear, tent city, lenny sandwiches our
12:29 am
good friend joe arpaio, now they are going after him. what do you make of the lawsuit or the attempt to make his life miserable? >> the bottom line is we are believing that the federal government is after arizona and they are going after everybody. they don't want to do their job. so they just start filing k what if they attacked our border, a lot of these issues would go away. sean politically, i don't think your poll numbers have been higher. the people of arizona agree with you. there are 20 governors now running they want to implement laws like the one you've implemented. there are other states that have almost verbatim the same law that you have but they've not gone after those states. r. >> one. what do you make of the selective moral outrage in this case? >> it is offensive.
12:30 am
pretty aggravating, considering that you know, there are other states that have or are going to implement the same basic law. the bottom line sean is that it mirror -- it mirrors the federal law, my goodness. same issue turning it over to the human rights committee at the u.n. why done they turnover their law to the united nations. i'm tired of fighting the feds, their tactics, but i won't give up. arizona won't give up. we are going to keep arizona safe. >> sean: a lot of people have come up with their own theories as to why they think this is happening. what do you think? do you think this is about politics? do you think this is about vote gathering? did you think this is, you know, breaking people into demographics? that the democrats have calculated this will help them with the hispanic vote in the country? >> all of the above. it is obvious what is taking place.
12:31 am
it is all politics in regards to how they are behaving, there's no excuse for it. it is like the unions, the bottom line the unions are at the white house more than . they are running our country. >> sean: governor, always a pleasure, thank you, pleasure chait it. >> thank you for your support sean. >> sean: you bet. coming up latoyia figueroa reveals what he -- louis farrakhan is saying there is a rise of copd makes it hard for me to breathe. but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now, i can join the fun and games wi my grandchildren. great news! for people with copd, cluding chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both, advair helps significantly improve lung function. while nothing can reverse copd, advair is different from most other copd medications because it contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator, working together to help you breathe better.
12:32 am
advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteoporosis and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking advair. i had fun today, grandpa. you and me both. if copd is still making it hard to breathe, ask your doctor if including advair will help improve your lung function for better breathing. get your first full prescription free and save on refills. about this "dedicated claims rep" thing. okay, well... calling yourselves "dedicated"? we're all dedicated, okay? the entire website team worked late every night this week look at sanjeev. he's a mess! what? no... guys, we're called dedicated claims reps because we each stay with an esurance customer throughout the automobile claims process. is not because we think we work harder than you. well, you don't. [ sanjeev ] am i a ss? [ joey ] you slept in the vending machine... [ male announcer ] want a great deal on car insurance?
12:33 am
go to esurance. >> sean: al gore has been honored in los angeles for the first time in that city's history a school was named after a former vice president. one small problem with the location of carson gore academy of environmental sciences. according to the "l.a. times" the school has been built on toxic land. keep in mind those health risks are in addition to the harm that watching gore's movie can cause ♪ [ male announcer ] it's a symbol confidence... ♪ ...honor... ♪ ...and trust. an unspoken bond that, while common among men... ♪ exceedingly rare among companies. the ram 60-day handshake.
12:34 am
12:35 am
>> sean: the ground zero mosque remains a national question bait. critics of the project continue to be branded as islam phobic. now adding to the volatile discussion is the too familiar instigator minister louis farrakhan. last week with other muslim leaders he said the controversy had more to do with race, adding opponents
12:36 am
were trampling on the constitution. >> when you want to toy with that document, and file it because you don't like muslims or you don't like mexicans or you don't like blacks or you don't like people of color, well if, if you include us, as your citizens, fellow citizens and you tax us and you call us to war, you're tearing up your book and if it continues you will end this great republic. >> sean: here with reaction to the growing complexity of this debate is former imam abdul rock manned muhammad. getting lectured about discrimination from louis farrakhan, judism, gutter religion, white man
12:37 am
skunk of the earth. it is a little pathetic, isn't it? >> he's doing what louis farrakhan does best, which is race-bait and racialize everything that he puts his hands-on. >> i i think that is well said. you wrote this column that appeared in the "new york daily news" i found fascinating. i want you to go into some detail. let's start with the controversial imam feisal abdul-rauf his wife daisy was on the this week program here's what she said. >> we are deeply concerned because this is like a metastasized anti-semitism. that's what we feel right now. it is not even islam phobia, it is beyond, it is hate of muslims. >> sean: "time" magazine for example had on the cover, about islam phobia as well. my question is, is america islam phobic? you said you think is going to be built, that's the reason
12:38 am
why the question whether america is is islamphobic you take issue, why? >> because it offensive. no one is going to stop this mosque from being built barring any financial difficulties, raising the funds this mosque is going to built and the law will protect these people in their pursuits. there's no one -- the issue of their legal right to build this mosque has never been an issue. it has all been about the appropriateness. we have muslims in the military. we have to muslim congressmen on capitol hill. we have 2,000 mosques across the country. we have muslims with advanced degrees. we have muslims that are doing well. muslims that are professionals, business people, doctors, lawyers, teachers, you name it. muslims are living the american dream in this country. for these muslims to say
12:39 am
there's some type of jim crow, islamphobia taking over america is obscene and offense . >> sean: the best line in your piece was, you said the this lowsome term islamphobia is nothing more than a thought terminating cliche conceived in the bowls of muslim think tanks for the -- bowels of muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics. explain? >> you have to understand they study over movements. they study the homosexual movement and they saw the success that community had in formulating the term, homophobia. they model this term, islam phobia after that term. and they use it as a bat to beat down their critics and stifle any type of debate and to sometime me their critics. >> sean: do you do you find as
12:40 am
i do feisal abdul-rauf america should be sharia compliant, america is an accessory to 9/11, our state department sending him on this junket. osama bin laden is made in the u.s. a. his unwillingness to condemn hamas. what is your reaction to him? i find him radical. >> all you have to do is ask him, do you condemn hamas? >> sean: he won't answer. >> that should give you a red flag that something is afoot here. >> sean: what do you think it is? >> i think that he's making a play to be the most powerful muslim leader in the muslim world. if he gets this mosque built, the muslim world will see it as a heavenly validation of the attacks of 9/11. >> sean: i an i think he's threading the needle. he doesn't have the moral courage to condemn what is obviously a terrorist group which has in its charter the destruction. state of israel.
12:41 am
he wants it both ways. to come off as a moderate in reality if he had any moral courage he would condemn hamas. isn't that a sign, isn't that evidence of his radical imor at least appeal to some radicals? >> more than an appeal to radicals. he's going to have to get his money from the same swamp that hamas gets their money from. that hezbollah gets their money from that all of these groups get their from, from the gulf states. he can't condemn hamas. >> imam appreciate you being with us. >> thank you sean. >> sean: time to check in with greta van susteren. >> i got a quiz: what do tucker carlson, steve ward, joe trippi, byron york, geraldo and ambassador bolton all have in common? >> sean: they are all going to be on greta tonight. >> greta: that's right. >> sean: they didn't give me pink cards. >> greta: i have purple, blue, yellow, i even have slippers.
12:42 am
sean and what are the slippers for? >> greta: i have everything tonight. >> sean: they look like o'reilly's slippers. >> greta: i also have a box of kleenex. i didn't ask for this here every night. a telephone. i got a lot of things they put on the set. >> sean: we'll give the slippers to o'reilly the tissues to beck and we are all set, we got gifts for everybody. >> greta: tissues for beck. >> sean: our great, great american panel is next. ♪ ♪ when i brush, i like to do a really mediocre job. i love running my tongue across my teeth and feeling l the stuff i missed.

>> sean: tonight on our panel he's worked at the "washington post" as editorial writer, white house correspondent, juan williams
12:47 am
is here. currently serving in the u.s. army special forces and the host of shark week, which i love on the discovery channel terry schappert is back. former communications director for the republican congressional committee karen hanretty with a new hairdo is here. fareed zakaria used to write for news week now he's with cnn, -- >> he's writing for time. >> sean: okay. september 11th, was a shock to the american psyche and system. as a result we overreacted. i'm thinking, how do you get a show and be that stupid? >> unbelievable. to me government's first job is protect the american people. >> sean: three thousand people died. people diving out of the world trade center building. >> i'm trying to make sense of the argument. is he talking about civil liberties more encroachment in terms of our liberties? there was a story in the "washington post" that we have
12:48 am
now thousands of intelligence agencies and people with secret clearance and maybe we've over done it. that's in service to the idea that we are supposed to protect the american people. there was a real murderous atrocity committed. i don't know how yougate way that. >> i also don't think too, it is also a case against big government. he also talks about the crazy bloated intelligence complexes. which is true. we did spend a lot of money on that also we were safer. we haven't been attacked. and so, overreacted it is easy to look back and say that but i don't know anybody who has lost their civil liberties. >> this is part of a bigger world view by this particular columnist and opinion writer. he does have a show on cnn. at the end of august, he did his monologue, and he actually compared -- he suggested that hamas, the terrorist organization is more religiously
12:49 am
tolerant the professors of the ground zero mosque. you read the monologue and he makes no bones about the fact that look, hamas is in lebanon allowing this synagogue to be built. if they can do that, that it is food for thought. shouldn't we be more tolerant here? he won't acknowledge that hamas is a terrorist organization. a report doesn't believe that, it doesn't surprise me that he thinks we overreacted on 9/11. >> i just don't think it makes any sense. >> i agree. >> i'm trying. i'm here to argue with mr. hannity. the closest i can come is -- >> sean: you are right. >> no, no tissues for you tonight. [ laughing ] >> butter very right, we've
12:50 am
over done some of the intelligence apparatus. that's about politicians being afraid that the other politician will say you are not doing enough. you are not committed to growing america. >> the only way you can say we overreacted is if you think al-qaeda is not a serious threat that terrorism is not a serious threat. i i think that attitude permeates this administration. but also perp yates a lot of liberal media. >> also a mistake to think is only about al-qaeda. it is much bigger. the guys we have taken down are not only associated with al-qaeda. >> he clearly is offended by what is going on with the mosque. he's muslim, and i know he return add award given to him by adl jewish group. he feels the fact that anybody would oppose that is evidence of bigotry. maybe that's the overreaction he's talking. >> sean: i would like him to explain why this imam can condemn hamas?
12:51 am
